After 18 years of being married and waiting, actress Assunta de Rossi announced she is now 14 weeks pregnant.
In an Instagram post, the Filipina-Italian actress said she is “just being bed all day” and was “feeling horrible.”
“And before anyone asks why I look like I’m on my way to the afterlife, allow me to list down all the symptoms I’ve had to endure this past 2 months: ✔️ Fatigue ✔️ Nausea ✔️ Tender, swollen breasts ✔️ Food aversions ✔️ Constipation ✔️ Dizziness ✔️ Heartburn,” she added in her post.
Assunta is already 37 years old, and her husband, politician Jules Ledesma is already 59 years old.
“On March 5, 2020, I paid a visit to my OB-GYN after not seeing him for 3 plus years. Why? I had missed my period. An ultrasound scan and blood test confirmed later that day that I was about 5 weeks pregnant,” the award-winning actress revealed.
“I know, shocking! Getting pregnant the natural way with myoma and endometriosis (which I both have) is extremely difficult. Only medical intervention or a miracle can make it happen. This was a miracle!” she added.

Assunta de Rossi is pregnant
Assunta and her husband took a break from show business and politics, respectively, to focus on having a baby. Throughout the process, she still believes “everything happens at the right time.”
“God not one minute early not one minute late. He is always in time,” she said in a previous interview with Pep.ph.
According to MSD Manual, “myomas (also called fibroids) are benign tumors composed partly of muscle tissue. They seldom develop in the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. When they do, they are usually accompanied by myomas in the larger upper part of the uterus.”
Endometriosis, meanwhile, “is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus.”
Last week, celebrity couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia announced they are expecting their first child.
Garcia shared a photo of her baby bump on Instagram and announced that she is five months pregnant.
Former One Direction member Zayn Malik and model Gigi Hadid were also pregnant with their first baby.
